. it has essentially detached crimea from the ukraine government's control. what remains unclear what vladimir putin wants to do with it, incorporate it into russia, use it as leverage to negotiate a deal with kiev, both? in any event, washington's response should be clear and forceful. russia has violated all kinds of laws and norms, including most crucially a treaty that it signed with ukraine guaranteeing that country's borders in return for which ukraine gave up its nuclear weapons. for washington, for americans, really for people around the world, it would be a terrible mess dent to allow issues like these to be resolved not by negotiations or diplomacy but by force. if russia can detach parts of neighboring countries with impunity, won't other great powers like china, decide that they, too, can act in similar ways. so what can be done? for starters, president obama should cancel entirely his attendance at the g-8 summit to be held in sochi in june. he should try to persuade the other major powers to follow suit. russia's membership in the g-8 should be suspended. the g-8 was cre
